Fall inspo

”Life starts all over when it gets crisp in the fall.”   Vivid as the ocean, infinite as the sky. Colourful as the leaves go by. Take a glimpse at nature, a glimpse at the stars, and know by heart, your true power lies within and beneath your scars. Cosy sweater weather Coffee and poetry Music and champagne kisses Soft raindrops against the window Peace of mind Art Scented candle dinner Exploring new cities Oat milk and honey Love and laughter Passionate hugs Mountains Ocean views Flowers and promises Confidence and compassion Curiosity and creativity Painting souls Travelling Catching stars Catching eyes Reading out load Believing Rainy nights Being here right now fall  ❤ Linda Annonser

– serenity –

”Be still and observe – The Earth is dancing.”   Random thoughts seeking stillness, finding creativity. I am ”I just want to sit in front of the ocean for a little while” kind of person. Whenever I need to find stillness I go to the ocean. The sense of calmness, as well as the sound of crashing waves always bring peace to my soul. I’ve always lived close to the sea; I grew up on the coast, in a small town in Finland, and I’ve always seen myself living close to the water, also in the future. Wherever I move there needs to be water. Water is life.  ”A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear.” I’ve noticed that the quieter I become, the more I can hear. My mind is one of those who like to constantly chitchat about this and that, and usually about weird, irrelevant topics. To be able to still the mind, and listen to what lies underneath is, however, my main purpose while seeking stillness. When the mind …

Never too late for a mental makeover

”Be pure, bright, white, light”   You can take your life in a new direction at any time. Every now and then it’s good to change things up, to keep things, and thoughts, fresh, in order to stay motivated and inspired. It’s easy to become under-stimulated if you keep on doing the same things, over and over again. In a sense it’s like driving on autopilot, where you just keep on moving forward, and still, you haven’t got the slightest idea what you’re doing, cause you’re not the one in control.  Then it’s about time. Time to open yourself up for fresh, new perspectives to enter.  If you’re looking for a mini life-makeover, then, first things first, you need to start from within. In other words, start with your mental state, since most often it’s the root to all problems. If you don’t change what’s going on inside your mind – with your thoughts, who you are and the way you think about certain things – then it’s going to be very hard to find a …

Talk about what you love

”Dear life, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”   My darlings, let’s talk about the things we love, shall we? I love soft hearts, the birth of a new day, watching the sky, at night, brimming with stars. I love a white canvas, painting my life, feeding my soul. I love talking to strangers, deep conversations, I smile, when you smile. I love waking up early dawn, life’s still asleep, my heart wide awake. I love writing, feeding you hope, feeding you joy and laughter. I love the moon, the sun, and the stars. I love summer. In fact, I love all seasons. Autumn, winter, spring. I love the serenity of nature, the richness and wisdom she provides. I love books. Oh, how I adore a great book. I love walking in an empty street, the stillness, the force of life running through my veins. I love a crowded market place, a foreign country, conversations …

What’s your reason for being?

”Wherever you are, be there.”   Who are you? I’m not asking for your name, or where you were born. I’m not asking about your profession, or your field of study. I’m not asking about what has happened to you in the past. And I’m not asking about your family, or who you’re dating. I’m asking about you.  Who are you? Finding oneself being lost in life, lost in translation, happens to all of us at some point in our life. If you’re feeling lost, then it’s exactly where you need to be right now. Be thankful to life, for always having your back. Be thankful for the path you’ve travelled; the way it has moulded you, and strengthened your sense of Self. Be thankful for where you are at this moment. With every breath; die with the past, surrender to the future, and awaken to the sound of your present heartbeat. The beauty of life lies in the simplest of things. You don’t have to feel obligated to write a list filled with material goals …

Positivity boost

”Dear human, something wonderful is about to happen.”   There are days when I have to remind also myself of the things I speak so highly of. Like for example the importance of having a positive mindset, no matter what life throws at you. There are a few empowering self beliefs that have the power to change your life. Simply ‘cause I strongly believe; you become what you believe. Our beliefs determine how we treat ourselves, but also how we choose to live our life and treat other people. These beliefs are deeply rooted within us, and therefore it can be very hard to change them. If you notice that your self beliefs are too negative then it’s only one person who can help you, and that person is you. However, in order to change something you first have to become aware of the ”problem”. Bring awareness into your life; the first step in reframing your thoughts is to listen and be aware of them so you can better understand them and your behaviour. The …

Unwind & rejuvenate

”Relax. My darling, unwind. Be patient and stay alert. You’re coming home. To yourself.”   Sunrise over a new day. Summer, you’re coming to an end. Fall, I welcome your gentle, peaceful breeze. Now I can finally hear the whispers in the wind. The clouds lay heavy, the rain is light. A new dawn burning bright. Lighting candles with my flaming heart. In between seasons, we are. What better time, than now, for a restart. Oh summer dear, I sense your last days are here. It’s time to unwind, and get ready for fall. Although I’ve experienced lazy, hot & humid summer days I’ve also been working a lot. These past three months have been busy and my body craves rest. It needs fuel. It needs love. However, the last couple of days have been a real self-care retreat, filled with self-love, healthy plant based foods, yoga, meditation, reflections and sweaty workouts. With that being said, below you’ll find some tips & tricks on how to recharge your soul. How to feel all sparkly, and good …

Laughter is cheap medicine

”Live from the deepest part of your being.” Human dear, believe in the magical being that you are. Live life in warm yellow light. See the light. Be the light. Let the sun caress your heart, your entire being. Wake up with a grateful heart, witness your presence, and decide every morning that you’re in a good mood. Darling, you always have the choice to be happy, you’re responsible for your own happiness. Be mindful of that nothing is permanent in this world, not even your troubles. This moment will pass, and you will never get it back. Be aware of your breath. Be aware of who you are. Embrace every experience with love and light, cause it will never come again.  Seriously, it’s all gonna be just fine. Start to welcome positive change into every area of your life. Don’t be scared that things won’t work out the way you planned, either they will or they won’t. That’s life. Stop second guessing yourself and start believing in yourself. Know that you have the freedom and power to …

Dear August…

… I think you’ll make my soul dance. ”Believe in yourself, darling human. Believe. Flowers will grow.”   August is for humid days, foggy nights. Soul searching and loving kindness. It’s for vulnerability and softness. Finding that inner, burning fire. Moonlight and thunderstorm. Poetry filled with soul and passion, the wildest of dreams coming true. It has always been you, dear August. Always been you.  Be brave, darling dear. Be brave. Everything you wish for, believe, and it will come to you. Don’t you know you were created to create? Create magic. Create yourself. If it’s meant to be it will flow to you, effortlessly and oh so gently. Give yourself permission to relax and enjoy the magic of being. Breathe in confidence. Exhale doubt. Stay wild, darling moon child, stay wild. Life always has your back. This August is all about success, bravery and dusty, dreamy mornings. Things working out exactly as supposed to. It’s about true inner freedom. Not getting lost in thoughts, but objectively watching them pass by. ”Come to know the one who watches the …

Things I like at the moment

”If you listen, you’ll hear her breathe.”   It’s in the little things. Ordinary moments turning into excitement. Fulfilment. Do you know you already have everything you need? Life. You have life. This second. Filled with anticipation. Filled with the little things. Everything you need. This very moment.   ”while in stillness i hear your heart beat not am i even next to you yet i imagine every sound.”   Humid & light summer nights at sea ”Breathe her in.” The stars, the moon, a warm, gentle breeze. Everything we need. Everything we asked for. The stillness speaks louder than our words. If you listen you’ll hear her breathe. Take a glimpse at the ocean. Allow the sound of the waves to caress your soul. You have talents; share them. You have a voice; speak up. You have dreams; believe in them. You’re human; be brave. Take a glimpse at the ocean. A glimpse at the heart. If you’d followed your intuition, we would never had been apart.   Books, books, books ”Turn a page.” …
